Manchester City on brink of fifth Premier League title

Raheem Sterling will be one of the best players in the world if he can become a better finisher, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes. Combining speed, guile, power and more speed, it has blown away opponents and redefined what anyone thought was possible in the English game.
City's Champions League conqueror moved ever closer to sealing its place in the competition next season as Liverpool cruised past Bournemouth with Salah again taking centrestage.
Guardiola's players will focus on those targets once they have recovered from a boisterous evening of celebrations in Manchester.
David SilvaMANCHESTER, ENGLAND - DECEMBER 03: David Silva of Manchester City celebrates scoring his sides second goal while Pablo Zabaleta of West Ham United looks dejected during the Premier League match between Manchester City and West Ham United at Etihad Stadium on December 3, 2017 in Manchester, England.
"We've won the league for you, Man City, Man City", West Brom's fans chanted after the final whistle.
The England global is City's second-highest scorer behind Sergio Aguero but his goals have also come at some key moments on their road to the title.
Manchester City are 16 points ahead of Manchester United, which they can stretch even further.
Guardiola's men were on course to drop points in two of their opening three games until Sterling's 97th-minute victor at Bournemouth back in August kicked off an 18-match winning run in the league.
